Continental Grand Sport Race Extra Road Bike Tyre
Grand Sport Extra Road Bike Tyre
The Grand Sport Exta tyres were released in 2014 by Continental as a more grippy upgrade to their popular low cost Ultra Sport road tyre. Featuring their new PureGrip compound and NyTech puncture breaker these are more of a budget Grand Prix 4000S II. Available in 4 sizes, 23mm, 25mm, 28mm and 32mm these should be perfect for road bikes right through to fast tourers
If you're looking for a balanced combination of price, grip and puncture protection then the Grand Sport Extra is a great option. I'd even recommend this over the classic Gatorskin due to the PureGrip compound offering much better confidence in wet, greasy and icy conditions.
- NyTech Puncture Protection has been developed based on the proven Continental SafetySystem Breaker. Its nylon fabric makes it resistant to punctures and cuts like Kevlar reinforced high strength fibres, but offers lower rolling resistance and reduced weight. The NyTech breaker sits between the SafetySystem and the PolyX Breaker® as a more effective puncture protection casing in the performance sector. Doubled up on the Grand Sport Extra for greater puncture protection.
- PureGrip Compound - Based on activated silica compounds, this technology was originally intended as an performance level compound, but after intensive development at Continentals Korbach Research and Development Department Facility, an advanced new compound with outstanding grip and cross-country properties was developed. This new rubber mix, given the self explanatory name “PureGrip”, is ranked just behind their BlackChili Compound and is being used in their performance products both in the road and mountain bike sectors. Whilst providing great grip, it is also long lasting and highly durable – both characteristics of Continental tyres,
